When you hear “your strategy needs a soul”, you instantly get goosebumps. You have the heart of a designer and the mind of a Big 5 strategy consultant.

 

Our Business Designers are integral to any design project. We solve and reframe business problems using a design mindset. We cut through the noise and clearly pinpoint where the actual problems and opportunities between the human experience, business and technology lie. Our perspectives challenge existing beliefs and trigger companies to change forward.

 

New growth opportunities, business models, products, services, platforms, and ventures – and how to make them fly – is what we’re passionate about. We mix several languages at once (human, operational, technical, and financial) to find the best path to achieve the greatest impact.

 

Your role

 

  • First things first: you’re a nice human being.
  • You’re a sharp, curious, and critical thinker.
  • You help the design and wider project team with research to understand user and client needs.
  • You dive deep into a wide range of research materials: customer, competitor, annual reports, ESG reports, trends & foresight, ecosystem, regulations, etc. to build a holistic point of view on potential opportunity areas or white spaces.
  • You co-shape strategic directions and propositions using the most impactful and latest frameworks and methodologies.
  • You co-evaluate new propositions from a business perspective (i.e. viability, feasibility, sustainability, scalability, strategy-fit, potential road blockers, etc.)
  • You prepare, co-facilitate, and co-synthesize ideation and co-creation sessions.
  • You help design business model variations and identify the riskiest assumptions that are worth testing.
  • You help set up experiments and create prototypes to test the identified assumptions (e.g. willingness to pay) and you’re able to draw solid conclusions.
  • You use numbers and metrics throughout the process, with the aim to make the work more impactful, e.g. quantifying the market potential of a new idea.
  • You’re able to co-develop high-level business cases for our clients, giving the entire team the confidence to move forward if the proposition is worth pursuing. E.g. quantifying revenue, cost, profitability and required investment levels.
  • You’re able to co-shape a roadmap for how to move from idea to scaled solution with adoption and traction.
  • You’re able to apply all the above skills in a venturing-context.
  • You’re interested in building and enabling the organization behind a new proposition or venture.
  • You communicate insightful and fresh messages to our clients and colleagues, and you co-facilitate communications across disciplines to create alignment.
  • You help on thought leadership, global and local, e.g. Fjord Trends.
  • You have experience with Excel and/or other analysis tools, PowerPoint, Keynote and/or software for presentation purposes. 
  • You can make yourself familiar with Sketch, Figma, InVision, Adobe suite or other prototyping methods. You can learn new tools in real time.
